Hi ya Missie. I woke up this morning singing a song in my heart so I thought I’d meander thru my thoughts for a while. (It’s at the bottom of the email…) Don’t know that anything got resolved. I almost feel really sad but this too shall pass. We’re headed to Naples today so I’ll get fed at my meeting 🙂 I’ll get to spend the morning with Lee and that’ll be lovely. To be near him when he’s here is always nice. God do I sound like a sap?? Last night was kinda tough so, that’s got me questioning my existence today. Just one more day Lis, hang on for one more day. Isn’t that a song? I know there’s a group or two out there that professes, one day at a time. I wonder that they need a slogan that reads, are you kidding me?? Hee Hee. Cough. There she is. Here comes the sparkle. Yea they’re dyin in droves but we can at least laugh about it. Eek. Have I gone round the bend? I figure if I really did go round the bend, 1 I wouldn’t know it and 2 somebody’d mention it.
Hey. Talked with my brother Georgie yesterday. Well, might be more accurate to say I laughed with my brother Georgie yesterday cuz we laughed til we cried and then laughed some more. If mom had been there she would have started hollering at us to shut up cuz she couldn’t breathe 🙂 God it was funny. Georgie was working on his tour and had come across a gal we’d both known in high school. She’s a pastor in a church along his route so he was checking in with me about her and her family. Neat thing the Internet. Wowwie doodle. We even found where her dad had passed a few years back. I’d remembered that their house had burned down in high school and how traumatic it had been for her mom. My mom and I went to the same church as them and I was in MYF with her and her younger sister. Everybody’s got somethin. And maybe that’s what I can stop barking? Cuz yes we all have challenges, but I’m almost feeling like I’m calling those challenges into being by declaring with such emotion that Everybody’s got something! Anywho, onward and upward.
Geeze, I’ve really been earning my pay these past few days, let me tell you. I think I even startled me with all that was accomplished. Wowzer! And I even made a point to stop at each hour when my clock sings to get up from my chair and walk around and drink in my thankfulness to God for my precious life. Course every once in a while when I was totally in the middle of something I tried to talk myself out of getting up. But then I think of God and all that He gives me in every moment, and it’s like, you can’t give Him thirty seconds out of a few hours each day? So I get up and then the rest are easier and more sweet.
Well, the bills are in the mail. Wowzer. We’d sent the meter out five days earlier this month to give Babs time to train the new guy, Corey. And he’s a real ball of fire and had them done for Monday. I think I already shared that part with ya? Well anywho, I asked Dollie if we could change the read dates from the 15th to the 25th to from the 10th to the 20th. That way, I get the meter back by the 20th, have my two days to process the bills, and get them in the mail the third week of the month. That way people have an additional week to send in their payments before the due date. It sure sounds like a win win to me. I asked Corey if he was ok with the change and he said yes, and Dollie is ok as well. So, that’s what we’re gunna do. There’s that month with the changeover that would be short but we already had it, so it’s not like we did it on purpose or anything. I think it’s brilliant. Onward and upward!! JesusGod, we made a change in Everglades City and lived to tell the tale. Tell me we ain’t livin in an awesome world 🙂 heh heh heh.
Well darlin, the day seems to be marching forth so I’d better get on the stick. Still have to make my bed and I’ve got a hot date with the shower before my first cuppa, so I’m outta here. Huge hugs Miss Phili Girl 🙂 All my love!! Lis
This was my morning ponder…
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know Who holds my future,
Then I can face another day
Because He Lives.
Thank You Lord for Lovin me. Thank You Lord for holding Lee in the palm of Your almighty hand. Thank You for surrounding him in Your grace. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
Last night in his drunken stupor, Lee just kept mumbling, just let me die, I just wanna die. Walk the walk Lis. you can do this.
I watch Dollie hang on for just one more day and she sees the insanity in every moment. What is it Lord that we’re hanging on to? She knows she’d be happier, certainly freer, if she left.
Am I beating myself up? Do you feel like it? No. There’s nowhere else I can see to be and I couldn’t care less. This is just fine. Isn’t great. Isn’t stupendous. But it’s adequate until,the next thing comes along. And if I’m supposed to be doing something or being something or thinking something different, then I trust that the One who made the entire Universe and keeps the planets spinning is far more than capable of getting the message to me in some way shape or form. Otherwise, I walk today’s path until I don’t. I have no dreams in my mind Lord. I don’t know if I have any in my heart. It doesn’t feel like it. I am willing to release untruth. I am willing to live Your Truth. I feel like I am living Your Truth in that I live each day to the best if my ability, leaning on You for guidance throughout those days. I notice my happies and I appreciate them dearly. I love and I am loved. I’m thinkin I’m doing good so, again, if I’m missin the V8, I appreciate the heads up. Lis
